Woodinville, WA, Wine Company Chooses Wicanders Cork FlooringThe use of cork at Ste. Michelle Wine Estates in Woodinville, WA, goes far beyond wine bottle stoppers.
The company has installed 15,000 square feet of cork flooring made by Wicanders. It was chosen to replace carpeting at the company’s office and production center for reasons that include dust allergy reduction, sound insulation between the first-floor production facility and second-floor offices, and it is a sustainable product that supports the cork industry, says Carrie Wirth, purchasing manager for Ste. Michelle Wine Estates. This company makes two of every three bottles of wine sold in Washington state.
